Dogecoin transforms from a joke into a real cryptocurrency
Dogecoin has a big following in the cryptocurrency space. Besides, like Bitcoin, it has a real-world use case as a medium for peer-to-peer transactions using a decentralized network. While cryptocurrency is often referred to as money for the geeks, Dogecoin is a token with a dog image on it. Perhaps this is why it is so valuable. People are probably finding it easy to relate to Dogecoin than other altcoins, let alone Bitcoin.
Dogecoin had an early start in cryptocurrency, debuting at the sheer peak of the meme’s popularity, the Doge meme – The iconic Shibe. In a tweet by Palmer, an Australian-based marketer, “investing in Dogecoin, pretty sure it’s the next big thing” put Dogecoin on the global map.
Dogecoin has had a lot of ups and downs since its intriguing start. However, the latest pump, over 500% is something to marvel about and Reddit traders are the people to thank for it. The 4-hour chart shows Doge breaking out of a symmetrical triangle. However, unlike the usual breakouts of similar patterns in technical analysis, Dogecoin went ballistic as investors rushed to capitalize on the gains.
